Toronto, Ontario City Council PULLS SUPPORT FOR TROOPS - Mayor cowers to decision

Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

20 June 2007: As being reported by Ms. Judi McLeod, founder and editor of Canada Free Press this morning, Toronto City Council yesterday ignored a sincere public uproar in backing the removal of yellow “Support Our Troops” decals from the backs of nearly 340 firetrucks and ambulances. Cowering in the shadow of that decision was Toronto Mayor David Miller by pushing the blame onto the chiefs of the city fire and city police departments, saying that it was their decision. Miller then suggested that it was really “a number of calls from people who are concerned about the city expressing an opinion on the war,” that ultimately led to the decal removal.

Can San Francisco, California and Ithaca, New York be that far behind?
